Abstract: "In a wider sense, we can speak of common property resources (CPRs) at various levels,--local, regional and global. We are concerned in this paper only with the local commons, and with Indian background. According to Jodha, who has done seminal work on the role and decline of CPRs, they are broadly speaking, 'resources accessible to the whole community of a village and to which no individual has exclusive property rights. In the dry regions of India, they include village pastures, community forests, waste lands, common threshing grounds, waste dumping places, watershed, drainage, village ponds, tanks, rivers, and river beds etc.' Our main interest in this paper is on common lands."
